Not a new watch, but new to me

Post by Gower8484 »

So its new watch day for me.
Pulled the trigger on this one.
It hasn't been on my radar at all but one came up at a decent price and I took a gamble on it having never tried one on before.
I'm very pleasantly surprised.
Might even go as far as to say I love it.
It's colourful, it's playful, it's comfortable.
And it's Tudor Thursday.
Perfect

Serendipity. Right place, right time. When it works it's great. Looks like it has. Congratulations. :D

Nothing ventured; nothing gained.

Looks like you came out alright.

: Absolutely lovely. What a great spontaneous pick-up. It’s light and breezy and I’m sure it will feel totally pleasant to wear. Enjoy! :thumbup:

Congratulations, I have always liked the look of these. :thumbup:

By taking a gamble I imagine that you thought “Monte Carlo or bust”. :)

For any forumites that aren’t aware this reissue (now once again discontinued) is based upon a vintage era Tudor Oysterdate chronograph from the early 1970s, a watch nicknamed “Montecarlo”…

Very nice indeed. There is a lot to like about that watch. Not the least of all is the absence of multiple lines of text telling me things I already know. :clap:

Congrats! Reminds me of a recent Breitling Top Time LE that I really liked, only this one is better…

Thanks everyone.
To be honest I purchased this not knowing if it would be a keeper or not.
Well it certainly is and might just be one of my favourites
